Echeverri, A., Karp, D. S., Naidoo, R., Zhao, J., & Chan, K. M. (2018). Approaching human-animal relationships from multiple angles: A synthetic perspective. Biological Conservation, 224, 50-62.
- We found that 27 academic fields within the umbrella field of human-animal studies study human-animal relationships.
- There is a strong differentiation between the fields that study “animals as constructed” vs. those that study “animals as such”.
- All these fields have much to contribute to conservation, but interdisciplinary research collaborations remain scarce.
